through the snow in boston, and then mary snow in staten island, an area hit by superstorm sandy. first up, poppy harlow. let's get the conditions where you are. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, marty. good morning, everyone. thank you for joining us on this snowy saturday. the sun has come up, the snow has slowed down, the wind gusts are less freekd than they were all through the night. it was torrential here through the evening. i can see down the block, i couldn't see that in the 5:00 eastern hour. now the issue is, how do you clean up? how do you remove the feet of snow that are here? another big issue, huge concern for rhode island folks is the amount of power outages. right now, we've got 187,000 homes without power. that's a big chunk of the population here in this relatively small state. there's big concern about that. and we knew that going into this storm because the snow was wet, it was heavy, and the warmer temperatures actually made it more difficult because that snow weighed on power lines, weighed on trees and now you've got a lot of people without power, ask that me
attention after superstorm sandy and working with the president. his reaction to people giving advice about his weight and what he could do, he is kind of a hot head about it, and the temperament might not be there. >> right. not always. i mean, i guess he was on "letterman" on monday and talked about it there. on tuesday he was sort of intro spektive about it, and the comments he made, his office then put it on youtube, and then by wednesday possibly when it got to the third day of talking about this, i think at that point he had sort of had enough. >> certainly it's very personal to have to go through something like that. not public. unfortunately, he is a public figure. the questions come up. michael, it's great to see you. thank you for being patient with me this morning. i appreciate it. >> all right, that's going to wrap things up for me today. i appreciate your time. we're going to be back on monday at 11:00 a.m. eastern, but don't go anywhere. "now with alex wagner" is coming up next. alex, still apocalypse to cover or something else? >> all snow-pocalypse for the next hour. we have
the coast is targeting many of the same residents who are still trying to recover from superstorm sandy just a little more than three months ago. in new york congressman peter king serves on the house homeland security committee and joins me now from long island. well, congressman, your community took such a heavy hit. how are you bracing for this storm? >> everything that can be done is being done, and sussex county is pulley mobilized. new york city is fully mobilized. one of the dangers we have, though, is many of peemt are living in homes that are still partially destroyed. this he may be living in the top floor of a two-story house with a bottom half of the basement destroyed. also, the shoreline has been dramatically weakened. even though the surges won't be as great as they were during sandy, it will be much harder to resist because of the shore lien that's been de stated so badly. we're hoping for the best. i guess one advantage is ok a friday night and into saturday at least the -- you know, the crews will be able to go out without worrying too much about traffic being in the way. y
as they were with superstorm sandy. listen to home depot customer rick martinez. >> if the power goes down, my -- i have hot air. that will not work. i have small children. that is my biggest concern. >> gas tanks. filling up the tank for the snow blower. plan on using it this evening. >> reporter: he certainly will be using that snow blower. good news for him is he didn't need one coming in to the storm. it is out of snow blowers, generators. it is also out of gasoline cans. all of that can be related back to sandy. think about generators. typically bought before a hurricane. it is different this time. so many people left without power after sandy so a lot of people coming in here. they sold 50-plus generators in 24 hours, alone and earlier sold out of salt and that ice melt. they just got a couple of palettes in. people came right over. they took about half of the palettes away and still demand for that. rest of the stuff, you're out of luck in hackensack. back to you. >> mary thompson, thank you. i think we have someone on the phone that knows a thing or two about the cancelations and delay
